    Yep, the original version had the Australian flag on the other side and looked much more balanced for it. From memory that version was first used 1993 or '94.

    The CFC Marketing dept need to be drawn and quartered. This is just terrible and represents everything that is wrong with the club.

    Correct and then it took the Aust government ten years (!) to realise that the logo was actually in breach of guidelines and the flag had to be placed on the left. Hence why it's hung upside down and looks weird.

    F#($%@#$(ing awesome new logo. If you're not sure about the change, the Richmond LOLtiger and the new Bulldog quickly became much-loved by fans. I'm sure you'll all come to love this magpie too. It looks brilliant and is a large improvement on a classic.

    Not bad, I'd prefer it without the golden wreath/leaves though. Collingwood don't have gold in their colours, so it shouldn't be on the logo.

    Vast improvement IMO - thankfully no Australian flag anymore.

    Given your knowledge on the logo, can you tell me when we changed the way the magpie faced?

    Off the top of my head it was around the time of the early 80s with Ranald MacDonald and the New Magpies. He wanted to signify the club moving forward and I believe that's when forward-facing magpies were first used in a marketing sense.

    As for the official logo, not until the 1993 rebrand (post-centenary)

    I can't believe all the hype and suspense over a logo change. I was expecting the 'new beginning' to be slightly more results oriented.

    That's because Collingwood "Football Club" now is so much more than a simple ordinary football club. We are a marketing machine preying on the weak and vulnerable supporter. We are a netball team, we are a PR team and I have just heard on the grapevine that we are soon to enlist a team to compete in the Eastern Conference in the NBA.

    I’m sure there’s more things to come over the course of the day.
    Besides, over the 125 years in our history how many times have we changed the face of our club.

    Didn't the one we just had for the past ten years have similar?

    When a Club mucks with the crest a releases a "LOGO" you know we've hit rockbottom with the corporate flogs at the Club.

    Incase anyone is wondering whether or not the Collingwod Football Club is no longer one of the last of its kind the link below will be a decent read. No longer a Football Club, we're now simply a brand, a corporation, an enterprise.

    Where's the "FOOTBALL CLUB" at Collingwood?

    If you haven't noticed, all clubs don't have that on their logos.

    Hence why i wrote "one of the last of its kind".

    We've gone down the Rabbit hole of branding.

    Nope. Not at all grumpy. But I can see how you might think that if you were to believe that a new logo will have any appreciable impact on Collingwood "Football Club"'s football performance.

    Nowadays CFC is all mayonnaise and no sausage. All butter and no bread. All hubris and no reticence.

    I feel underwhelmed by it, but I don't hate it.

    Disappointed that they've removed "Collingwood Football Club" and replaced it with "Collingwood", showing a distinct shift from purely being a football club to a wider corporate brand.

    I do like the B&W stripes and good to see the year of the foundation of our club has been incorporated into the logo.

    Would prefer the COLLINGWOOD and 1892 be black characters on white background. Much easier to tattoo.
